So the mushrooms were attached to a shell on the sand bed and one of my hermits just took it over. Now he's running around the tank with my mushrooms on his back. Will they die? Will the detach and settle somewhere else?

they do not like flow but it will not kill them. they will just release from the rock and you will see them floating around. When I do a water change and all my pumps are off my red mushrooms get about 5 inches in diameter. normal is about 3 inches.

So would it be a good idea if I see them floating around to catch and attach them to a small piece of LR?

I've had 2 mushrooms let go. They will float around until they find a spot with low flow and attach themselves. You could give them a hand and place them in a spot with low-medium lighting and low flow, or let them find a spot, your call.

If it starts to bother you, get a small plast cup and fill it with liverock, put the mushroom in it and cover the container in some type of breathable mesh( I've heard of brides vail being used), put it in a low flow area and in a week it will be attached. Put it where you like
